Lenovo 320 Ideapad 15 ABR laptop A12 AMD slow download wifi speed

I have a new Lenovo Idea pad laptop 320 15 ABR 80X AMD A12 processor with wifi 802.AC. and I'm  experiencing slow download speed compared to my last Asus laptop. I have a Verizon 75/75 plan with an Actiontec Qualcomm QCA 9377 router. With ethernet I'm getting over 100mps.  I contacted Verizon who transferred me to Qualcomm support who advised me to disable the WMN setting in my router.  This improved My speed to about 20 mps download, much better. I think I should still be getting faster speeds than 20mps.  My router is a 802.11n. and with my Asus I got about 40 Download with it.  I was wondering if there are other settings to change to increase my speeds above 20mps.  My router is only about 6 foot from My laptop. I thought the 802.11AC where backward compatible with the 802.11n..  I've all the latest drivers and would appreciate any information if I can or cannot increase My speed with this router and laptop?  I have a tablet and it gets 30+ on the same router.

Re: Lenovo 320 Ideapad 15 ABR laptop A12 AMD slow download wifi speed

I was told on a Windows 10 Forum that I would need to get a new router that supports the 802.1.ac my laptop has to get the full speed. But I thought the Verizon 802.1n was backward compatible with wifi AC. Shouldnt I be getting at least 30 Plus mps with the Actiontec router that I got with my Asus?
